Jamma's got it about right. I kept thinking Souped-Up FernGully: The Last Rainforest. incredibly thin story, characters, etc... you can see the ending from the beginning. great visuals.

Don't you guys know that things that activists preach about absolutely do NOT apply to the preachers themselves? It's a lot like priests being celebate, but banging altar boys. The same rule.

I hated it. The visuals are awesome but the plot sucks so bad. It would have been a much better movie if they only showed the fighting. I asked myself so many times if it would ever end. Just the whole 9 foot tall blue aliens that connect to pterodactyl-dragons and rhino-horses through a pony tail and control them with their mind irks me. Also, would a bunch of alien people with bows and arrows and the 4 whole kinds of animals they have on their planet would beat the trained skillguys with things that explode good, huge helicopters, and robo-suits with gigantic weapons attached to them?

With all due respect, and by that, I mean you are an idiot, I completely disagree TWest. I thought that the plot was surprisingly above average. The movie is something completely new. The casting of characters was very well done, and overall, I thought it was one of the best movies of the year (2009, not 2010).

Point taken. But despite the length, it was a fantastic movie. You might remember another James Cameron movie that was increasingly long, but fantastic. It won a helluva lot of awards. The movie: Titanic.

Concept not new. It was a mash up of Dances with Wolves and Fern Gully. The main character wasn't likable at all. Visuals were stunning though. Cameron's world was well imagined.

Couple of questions with some spoilers. The first one bugged me the most. Why if you have the ability to travel through space with high tech weaponry would you manually push a bunch of explosives out of the loading dock? I know that they said the mountains or whatever were messing up the instruments but really, you are going to have a bunch of soldiers just heave the bomb put together with some straps just at the right time? And you'll leave the dock open well before you arrive at the drop zone so that the aliens you KNOW have the ability to fly to counter your plan? You gotta have something better than that. Come on.

And why did those machine like robots not have weapons built into the machine instead of having to carry them around? If you build a tank, you aren't going to have arms that hold weapons--you just build the weapons on the tank. And a huge knife that you can hold in the machine? Retractable bayonet? Nope. They just build huge knives for these robots.

It's a cartoon. Completely different. In this movie they are still trying to create a world with somewhat plausible scenarios. Gravity works. The world is still based in science. There are humans that are still just humans...but with explained technological advancements.

Actually "fancy cartoon" is a good way to describe it. It's a beautiful piece of animation with some Michael Bay Lite characters saying stupid sht during the live action sequences. Take out the human actors and you're left with an amazing 90 minute moving work of 3-D art. But it's still pretty good even with the Injuns v. Empire plot. I'd recommend it to everybody I know.

P.S. Phill Kline didn't like it, and he wants you to know why.
